Love and Summer: A Novel by William Trevor

'Love and Summer' Book Discussion

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library - Central Library

2:30 p.m.
William Trevor in Love and  Summer: A Novel depicts the imaginary Irish town of Rathmoye in the mid-Twentieth Century. We first meet the townspeople at a funeral. The fool, Orpen Wren, was once a librarian at an Anglo-English family's home in the town. He carries the past with him, and will play a decisive, if inadvertent, role in the conclusion of the book.
